Depends on the position. Most either want you to start in 2 weeks or within a couple months of getting the offer

I would recommend you start networking with folks in the companies / functions you want to move into. Build a relationship, have an intro chat, keep up with them and then a few months later mention you’re really interested and want to move into a role, they can then keep you in mind for roles that work well. This works and is way better than blindly applying / relying on random strangers to refer you.

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏

Hello Everyone, Hope you are doing well. I need a small help and advice from advice from all of you. Recently I received an offer from MNC but a some what wierd clause is included if I get rejected in the client interview company will decide my further deployment and engagement.

Please help me understand it.

Is there a “market salary” at the big consulting firms? I’m a big law attorney doing IP, and have always wondered what it would be like to get into consulting. Big law salaries are very lock step, so you get basically the same annual base compensation and bonus if you’re at the top 30-40 firms and working in a big city. Maybe more generally, I’m curious how much former big law associates make in consulting (if they ever make the switch), particularly if they understand Intellectual property.

I have an interview coming up for Rev Strategy & Ops under Customer Solutions. This will be my 5th interview with Google, after things not working out for two other roles. I am so tired 😓 & with little confidence. The recruiters have all said I have had great feedback but it’s the cases get me. So many weekends have been spent prepping with the same result. Yet the recruiters continue to back me; placing me in the process for more roles. Just feel hopeless & like I’m letting good ppl down 😞

MBB, Tier 2, Big four consulting 🐠, has any of your firm or your office entered at least the first phase of the return-to-office plan? To my knowledge consulting industry has been more conservative (almost everyone is still remote) and hasn’t made any substantial moves unlike banking industry, Is that true?
